 Call of Duty Vanguard is no longer supported with additional content or significant updates, and players have largely moved on to more recent releases. Nevertheless, Vanguard’s multiplayer is still available and it’s definitely still useful to level up weapons as fast as possible.

With Call of Duty Vanguard featuring a massive pick-ten loadout system, levelling up weapons as fast as possible was more important than ever. Reaching new levels provided extra attachments and more options for your guns, which was crucial for crafting an up-close-and-personal MP40 loadout or a precision-focused Kar98k loadout.

There were some sneaky key steps you could take to ensure you were leveling up weapons in Call of Duty Vanguard quickly. After hearing what the community had tried and verifying the methods in-game ourselves, here is exactly how to level up guns quickly in CoD Vanguard today.

Call of Duty Vanguard level up weapons fast

Here are three key tips to levelling up your weapons fast in Call of Duty Vanguard:

Use the right operator

The first thing to check before heading into a game mode with the gun you want to level is which operator you are using. Browse the lineup, and look for what their favourite weapon is. If you play as an operator whose favourite gun is the one you want to level up, you will get an XP boost as you rank them up.

For example, Roland’s favourite weapon is the STG44. So, if you’re grinding to make an excellent STG44 Vanguard class, you should use him as you play.

Play your strongest mode

Another top tip is to play the modes that you are strongest at. If you are playing something where you struggle to get upwards of ten kills in a match, then you might want to find something that you are stronger at, to maximise your XP gain.

Modes like Search and Destroy can offer lots of lucrative XP, but it’s only worth playing that mode if you’re going to drop a lot of kills.

Try some Hardcore multiplayer

Finally, if you are comfortable playing Hardcore, definitely opt for these modes. With most guns being a single shot to kill, due to the reduced health in Hardcore modes, it’s easy to stack medals to earn extra XP.

A final tip: Zombies is not as good for levelling up weapons as it used to be. While playing Zombies in Black Ops Cold War was an efficient way to farm weapon XP, the scoring systems are not as generous in Vanguard. Multiplayer is definitely the best way to level up fast.
